Xiaomi just launched its latest smartphone dubbed “phablet” in India, The successor to the last year’s product and the subsequent Prime variant that the Chinese company, the Mi Max 2 represents the best of Xiaomi. Nowadays most of the peoples consume lots of media on their devices so max 2 will more for people who love a large smartphone. The Mi Max sold over 3 million units.
Mi Max 2 will be a bit costlier than its successor but not by much At Rs 16,999 for the 64GB variant, the Mi Max 2 treads on the line between smartphones and the so-called phablets.
The Mi Max 2 is huge.feels bigger than normal 5.5” screen phones. Big in hand you have to use it by two hands, not for single hand usage “it’s really big”,black varient looks more premium with full metal body.
At 211 gms. it comes at heavier side than its predecessor but it’s pretty thin at just 7.6mm which gives it a premium look. The edges have been curved and rounded, which provides a better grip on the smartphone.
The top houses a 3.5mm jack adjacent to an IR blaster along with a microphone and front-facing camera embedded in the bezels while on the bottom, you’ll find a USB Type-C port in between two speaker grills.The design of Max 2 is seamless, right from the matte finished back which curves on the edges to meet the display.
max 2 comes with 6.44-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) IPS panel covered by Gorilla Glass 3. screen is 75 percent of the body with bezels on the top and bottom .i liked the display of max 2 its bright, vivid and with crisp details. can be used for watching video on YouTube, playing games some regular stuff. we personally enjoyed watching some youTube videos which were looking sharp enough on Max 2.
Max 2 sports a 12-megapixel rear camera with an aperture size of f/2.2, backed by dual-tone dual LED flash and supported by phase detection autofocus. you may notice that its downgrade than Max wich provided with 16 MP camera but Max 2 will provide better picture quality by using Sony IMX386 sensor found on Xiaomi’s flagship smartphone, the Mi 6.On front it provides 5 MP camera with f/2.0.
The camera interface is similar to other Xiaomi mobile phones you can adjust exposure, Tapping the shutter button captures the image while long pressing it results in burst shots over all simple and useful to use.
During daytime, the pictures came out to be pretty detailed with accurate colours making the Mi Max 2 capable of capturing great imagery.However, during low-light, capturing shots from the Max 2 is a pain as the camera tends to soften the images, add a lot of noise and over process them. Sometimes.The camera on the Mi Max 2 also supports 4K video recording through which I was able to get some great footage.
The Mi Max 2 rocks Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 SoC with an octa core processor clocked in at 2.0GHz and backed by Adreno 506 as its GPU. The is supported by the 4GB of RAM and an onboard storage of 64GB/128GB which can further be expanded up to 128GB via microSD card. snapdragon 625 is power efficient and also can handle multitasking effectively with 4 GB of ram its even better for multitasking and transition between apps.
The Mi Max 2 comes with a humongous 5,300 mAh battery which is one of the USP of the smartphone. In my daily usage, which happens to be heavy, playing games, watching YouTube videos, browsing the Internet, checking out Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds along with texting on instant messengers led the battery to last for a whole day and then another 9 to 10 hours before plugging the Mi Max 2 in.
Xiaomi has launched the Mi Max 2 with MIUI 8.5 based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat which happens to be a first for the company. Xiaomi’s MIUI is a full custom skin that offers a slew of features for the users. Dual apps allow users to sign two accounts into a single app. So, for examples you have two phone numbers and want a WhatsApp account for each of them, the Dual apps feature would let you do just that. Along with this, MIUI 8 enables users to take longer screenshots of pages. There’s also a built in Caller ID app that uses MIUI’s database and shows users information about flagged numbers.
